- It should be no surprise that once again the starting offensive line played every snap and had another strong performance. From left to right the group of Byron Bell, Andrew Norwell, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner and Mike Remmers has really helped this offense become much more effective the past five weeks. If this team hopes to win Saturday's playoff game, they will need another strong performance from the offensive line.
- The Panthers offense wasn't on the field as much as they have been in recent weeks due to the fact the defense returned two interceptions for touchdowns. This cut down on all the players' touches and was one of the reasons that Jonathan Stewart only had 13 carries against the Falcons. The previous three games he was averaging 22 carries per game. He should see that number jump back up when the Panthers take on the Cardinals.
- Cornerback Bene Benwikere was the only player on the defense to play every snap. The fact that the Panthers had such a big lead played a big role into how many snaps players saw and coaching staff starting to work in some of the backups.
- Defensive end Frank Alexander was active for the first time this year against the Falcons, playing 22 snaps. The coaching staff split up the playing time fairly evenly among the defensive ends outside of Charles Johnson. Alexander, along with Kony Ealy, Mario Addison and Wes Horton were able to stay fresh for the entire game thanks to this kind of rotation and helped the Panthers keep a steady pass rush on Matt Ryan.
